True Integrity – A Situational Readiness Workshop

Facilitator: John Collins, Critical Victories

“I Would Never Do Something Like That.”

The study of ethics is not what most people think it is. And there is a formidable barrier to ethical and moral decision-making that deserves our attention during times of temptation and vulnerability, which is one’s own conditioned belief that he or she is too strong to succumb to catastrophic urges or impulses. But as we learn in TRUE INTEGRITY, people who become compromised are often unaware that it’s happening.

For those in positions of leadership, it is vital to remember that every catastrophic failure or unethical decision is preceded by a crisis. This crisis can be personal, or it can be collective across an entire team or organization. This means that to avoid unethical decisions or behaviors within an organization such as a forensic science laboratory, the crisis must be recognized and dealt with before it devolves into a catastrophe.

In this special hosting of the TRUE INTEGRITY workshop in partnership with the Association of Forensic Quality Assurance Mangers, we will conduct a deep exploration into the key foundational principles of ethical decision-making and how to optimize a team’s environment so that we can trust that ethical choices will be made even when the temptations and pressures are unusually high.

Average professionals believe they would “never do something like that.” But the key to having a strong ethical composition is knowing that, “yes, I would.”

This one-day Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt workshop is designed to provide participants with a solid introduction to Lean Six Sigma methodologies, highlighting the use of various LSS tools with a particular emphasis on Value Stream Mapping (VSM). Aimed at professionals committed to enhancing process efficiency and quality, the workshop explores the DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control) framework and introduces essential tools such as cause-and-effect diagrams, control charts, and Pareto analysis, amongst other valuable ones. Central to the workshop is the application of VSM to visualize and analyze the flow of materials and information, identify waste, and streamline processes. Through a mix of interactive lectures, practical exercises, and case studies, attendees will gain the skills needed to support Lean Six Sigma projects and drive continuous improvement within their organizations.
